A Note From Therapy
Mr. B was admitted to San Rafael Nursing and Rehabilitation after being discharged from the hospital following a shunt placement. At admission Mr. B was unable to walk, toilet, dress himself or eat solid foods. Although he was disoriented upon his admission he was a very hard worker from the beginning of his stay. His determination to get stronger helped him meet his goals in just two weeks and return home with home health care services. At the time of discharge Mr. B was able to walk with a walker, toilet with assistance of grab bars, dress himself with minimal assistance and was able to eat a complete meal of solid foods with little assistance. Mr. B was most happy at being able to eat again and was looking forward to returning back to his home and continuing his recovery.
